PLAY THE GAME OR DIE! ‘HARD-BOILED SPORTS’ DEBUTS FROM PRO SE PRODUCTIONS
Sports stories have always proven popular with readers, as have hard hitting mysteries and crime tales. Pro Se Productions, an innovative publisher of Genre Fiction, forces the two genres to collide head on in its latest anthology, HARD-BOILED SPORTS.
“Since the classic Pulps,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “Sports has had a home in Genre Fiction. With this anthology, we set out to deliver fantastically told stories of players and their games, but with a bit of a twist. HARD-BOILED SPORTS peels back the glossy veneer of the sports world and shows the underbelly, the tension, even the danger that is sometimes a part of that next homerun or left jab. These stories are infused with both the high of victory and the foreboding specter of defeat and what darkness that might mean. Top notch fiction waits for its fans in HARD-BOILED SPORTS.”
The fast paced, competitive world of sports slams hard into the unforgiving asphalt and dark shadows of Pulp and Noir in Hard Boiled Sports! Celebrity and glory show their darker sides in tales from John Simcoe, M. Keaton, Sharae Allen, and Joe Hilliard. Pain is real in sports, and sometimes it’s more than a broken bone or bruised shin. Combining the epic ups and downs of Sports tales with the gritty realism of crime tales, Hard Boiled Sports scores on all levels!
Featuring a stunning cover by Larry Nadolsky and cover design and print formatting by Antonino Lo Iacono, HARD-BOILED SPORTS is available now at Amazon atand Pro Se’s own store.
This hard hitting collection is also available as an Ebook, designed and formatted by Lo Iacono for the Kindle at and for most digital formats via Smashwords.
MAD SCIENTISTS, UNITE! ‘IT’S ALIVE’ DEBUTS FROM PRO SE PRODUCTIONS
Monsters roam the night! Creatures of horror stalk human prey! Strange happenings ending in violent death! All of this and more the product of insane science perpetrated by men and women most would call mad! IT’S ALIVE: TALES OF MAD SCIENTISTS from Pro Se Productions brings that most unusual of characters into the glow of the flashing lightning in the night sky!
“Mad science,” explains Pro Se Editor in Chief Tommy Hancock, “has been the backbone of Pulp and Genre Fiction as far back as you can read. And IT’S ALIVE spotlights those purveyors of insane chemistry, biology, and more. The three stories in this anthology are over the top and as much fun as any villager storming a castle with torches and pitchforks can have! Much like the archetype they are built around, these tales know no boundaries and truly are a whole lot of Genre goodness that readers will enjoy!”
The Mad Scientist, certain that what they do is for the good of the world, or perhaps only because Science demands they do it, or even simply because they can! Whatever the motivation, authors Hope Erica Schultz, Forrest Dylan Bryant, and Carson Demmans dig deep into the twisted minds of those who seek to further Science by breaking the very laws of reality! Listen…You’ll hear them as electricity sizzles, as solutions boil and bubble. There, hear it? That maniacal scream of… IT’S ALIVE! TALES OF MAD SCIENTISTS From Pro Se Productions.
Featuring an awesome cover by Larry Nadolsky and cover design and print formatting by Antonino Lo Iacono, IT’S ALIVE: TALES OF MAD SCIENTISTS is available now at Amazon and Pro Se’s own store.
This creepy, kooky anthology is also available as an Ebook, designed and formatted by Lo Iacono for the Kindle at and for most digital formats via Smashwords.

Wrightson’s name was synonymous with the best the horror comics genre had to offer and he often spoke of the lasting influence EC comics titles such as the original TALES FROM THE CRYPT and VAULT OF HORROR had on his work.So, it seems only appropriate that two of Wrightson’s stories are included in Super Genius’ new revival of the TALES FROM THE CRYPT series.Issue #2 (in comic shops this Wednesday) features two “lost classics” from Wrightson, “Stake Out” and “Feed It!”, both appearing in color for the first time. The two stories had originally appeared in black and white in other publications but when CRYPT editor Jim Salicrup rem…
It was a cold night, but it didn’t stop the faithful from spending some time on the main drag in Oxford PA for the monthly First Friday celebration. This month, the theme was Super-Heroes and employees (and sometimes customers) at several establishments went along with the theme and dressed appropriately. (We had our Batman tee shirt underneath our sweater but spared the innocent, only flashing it to friends.) It was the perfect theme for the recently opened MAROON HORNET COMICS shop at 45 South Third Street in Oxford. Owner Randy Grace employed the mercenary-for-money Deadpool as a store greeter, and local writer Greg Cox was in attendance, signing his new book. The store is fully stocked now, and has an impressive assortment of comics, games, posters, and related toys and accessories. Randy and Lori Grace are very friendly and happy to be able to provide a comics outlet in Oxford for local pop culture fans.Greg Cox is a best-selling author, who’s earned a deserved rep…
